Permit (Plan) Review

Permit (Plan) ReviewSome projects can be fully permitted over-the-counter (same day) at the Development Services Center, while other projects require that the plans be left for review. The timeline for a permit being issued depends on the size and complexity of the project, the completeness of the submitted application and response time in providing requested materials. Review staff work on a “first in, first out” basis, which is determined by the date plans are received.
